20 Weeks! HALF WAY!!!

Keating is the size of a cantaloupe!

John Wayne wanted in on the baby bump picture!

I have a bump!

* How far along?: 20 Weeks
* Total weight gain: Im not sure? I go to the Dr on Monday so we will see!
* How big is baby?: The size of a cantaloupe! WOW! No wonder I have felt some serious stretching lately!
* Sex: BOY!!!!
* Maternity clothes?: All pants and some shirts
* Stretch marks?: nope but my belly feels like its really stretching now. I'm keeping it well moisturized.
* Sleep?: So so. Its getting hard to change positions and not being able to sleep on my back is a huge pain. For those that dont know, you cant sleep on your back after you're about 16 weeks pregnant because the uterus pushes on some important artery or something? Sound pretty scary, but its really nothing to worry about.
* Best moment this week? My husband finally getting to feel the baby kick. He has been trying to feel for a couple of weeks now. Once he felt it he said "Oh thats it? I felt that a long time ago!"
* Movement?: yep! He's quite the hyper boy! Seeing my belly bounce up and down is very surreal.
* Food cravings?: Nothing really because I have been having stomach aches after I eat. Keating is taking up all of my eating room in my stomach!
* Labor signs?: n/a
* Belly button in or out?: In but looking different.
* What I miss: my brain! I am losing it... literally. I have lost my camera and camera charger and have no clue where either are!
* What I'm looking forward to: Baby related, getting starting on the nursery. Non baby related, going to Boston!
* Words of Wisdom: When you get knocked up, your blog followers start dropping like flies. Am I giving too much baby talk??
* Milestone: WOW I'm half way there!!!


  1. I'm totally with you on your followers dropping...you get fewer people who want to read baby posts everyday! That's okay! And you look great! :)

  2. Your hair looks really cute! I don't mind the baby talk- I've never been through it and I'm totally curious what it's like, so I love that you're giving some details! I had no idea you could actually feel your skin stretching but I guess it makes perfect sense. Congrats on the half-way mark!

  3. your hair looks adorable. i can't believe the baby is the size of a canteloupe! crazy!

  4. I like the baby posts. I am learning new things all the time! Great picture!

  5. You look adorable!!!

  6. I love the picture with the dog -- too cute!

  7. You probably said this before, but who takes these baby bump pictures for you? I know you are the photographer, so I wasn't sure who was taking these or if you had a tripod thing set up.

    That is hilarious what your husband said about feeling the baby kick.

  8. I am also loving your baby updates!

  9. Her beautiful, fabulous, sexy mom takes all of her pictures! haha

  10. I love his name :) I kept saying it outload, over and over...my co-workers are wondering what I'm up to??

  11. Thank you all for your compliments and for still following me! My "sexy" mom as she likes to describe herself, takes all of my bump pictures for me. =)

  12. CONGRATULATIONS on your pregnancy!! I'm new around here, I just linked through somewhere else, and I couldn't possibly see belly photos and not wish you the best of luck =) You look great; I wouldn't even know you were pregnant. When I was pregnant, I was much...um...well, I wasn't as well contained.

    Congratulations again =) Enjoy your pregnancy; it's such a wonderful experience. Most of the time.
